We Determine the Responsible Party for the Accident
A motorcycle accident lawyer examines the circumstances of your case to determine the at-fault party.
We can secure the necessary evidence and documentation to help demonstrate that:
- The other party owed you a duty of care to take reasonable actions to prevent the accident and protect you from harm.
- The other party breached this duty in some way, such as texting and driving.
- This negligence caused you bodily injuries.
- You have damages from these injuries.
A motorcycle accident lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ can protect your rights and seek recovery while you focus on your health and well-being.
Why You Should Call a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
You might think that recovering damages from a motorcycle accident is a simple process. You get the at-fault party’s insurance information, fill out a claim, and wait for them to process payment.
Keep in mind that an insurance company may deny your claim or offer you a settlement far below what would qualify as fair compensation for your losses. If you suffered a permanent injury that results in an ongoing condition, for example, your recovery should account for future medical expenses.
A motorcycle accident lawyer serving El Paso can help assess your losses and fight for your legal rights. If a fair settlement is not arrived at with the insurance company, we can take your case to court to seek fair compensation by filing a lawsuit on your behalf.
For a free case evaluation with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™, call (713) 850-8600.
Why You Should Call Us As Soon As Possible
Like other states, Texas has a statute of limitations, or deadline, for personal injury lawsuits. Texas law (§16.003) allows two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the liable party or parties.
This sounds like plenty of time to prepare a case, but you should know that many lawsuits are the result of unsuccessful settlement negotiations. Lawsuits are typically filed only after an insurance company does not offer a fair settlement.
A few reasons you should call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ today:
- Evidence can erode or disappear the more the time passes.
- You may have significant losses from unexpected medical bills, combined with lost income, for the time lost and away from work due to injuries.

Distracted Driving Is Illegal and Dangerous

Texting while driving is one example of distracted driving. Others include:
- Talking on a hand-held cell phone.
